Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Steve and I (Heather) have lived in Duluth for the past 20 and 15 years respectively. We call it home now and have a tough time seeing ourselves living elsewhere. Lake Superior has a draw and we've been mesmerized since moving here. We both love the water and spend a significant amount of our free time surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Both of us have caught a muskie out of our canoe a stone's throw away from our house on Minnesota Point. We've also been able to surf every month of the year! Although I'd recommend a wet suit Fall/Winter/Spring. We love this area and always look forward to coming home when we've gone on vacation.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Owner chose Park Point
Actually the vacation home is Steve's first home. He spent much of his free time repairing/refinishing. It is furnished with antiques handed down in our family that Steve refinished. We were unable to part with it when we moved to our new home less than a mile away so we turned it into a vacation rental home in 2010.
What makes this Cottage unique
You'll have direct access to the largest freshwater lake in the WORLD (Lake Baikal in Russia is largest by volume, Lake Superior is largest by surface area)! You are less than one mile away for the farthest inland port in the world. You are less than one mile away from one of the largest lift bridges in the United States. There you can view Ocean and Great Lake ships from less than 100 feet as they enter and leave the port. Minnesota Point is surrounded by water and the Aerial Lift Bridge is the only point of access by land. You are essentially on a island! Steve lived in this house for several years and knows you have great neighbors! If you want shopping, coffee, antiques they are less than 1 mile down the road over the Aerial Lift Bridge. You can also make the walk on sandy beach.

Cozy family home
This is such a charming, warm home in a wonderful location. Being just steps from the beach, you can hear the waves from the house!! Well appointed kitchen, perfect layout, great amenities.
Great place and great location
What a great place! There was 6 of us staying. Plenty of room for all of us. Great location!! Close to Canal Park but without the feeling of being in the busy area.
The house was clean and quiet. I’ll comeback again!
A visit during Bentleyville
Went for a short stay to relax and see Bentleyville. Owners were very easy to get in contact with when we had a question, and even set up a gate at the stairs which helped us keep our sanity with our one-year-old who loves climbing.
Property is well-kept and comfortably furnished and decorated.
We'll be back!
I absolutely loved staying here. I have an 8 month old who can crawl and so even in super clean houses, he gets pretty dirty. Not here, and this is an older house! It was worthy of note how clean everything was. Also the house is adorable, lots to do (ping pong, foosball, sauna) and a great location (less than 5 minutes from breweries, a distillery and shopping). I want to return in the summer to take advantage of the beach access more. Could not be more pleased with the stay.
Perfect Girls Retreat
This home is perfectly represented and did not disappoint! Super clean! Great location!!
Water sports abound just out you door on the sandy shore of Lake Superior. Kite surfing, wind surfing, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing all can be seen/enjoyed.
